    He's the smartest and the most stubborn, the fattest and the laziest, the cleverest and the craziest - the most extravagant detective in the world. Yes, it is Nero Wolfe, Rex Stout's gourmand orchid fancier and one of the most eccentric and unique detectives ever to hit the airwaves. Starring character actor Sydney Greenstreet ( The Maltese Falcon), The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe is an immensely entertaining mystery series that remains a true delight even 60 years after it was first broadcast.

    This tale by Alfred Bester has a strong thread of plausibility running through it. Just enough conviction, if in fact, to wake up in the middle of the night with a feeling that someone stole the blankets.
